Illinois Campground Owners Convene
Thirteen people from 11 campgrounds attended the Illinois Campground Association Spring Conference April 21-22 at Camp Lakewood Campground near Effingham, Ill.
Max Gibbs, representing the National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds (ARVC), outlined ARVC member benefits to the association. Other speakers were Al Wooleyhan from First Mid-Illinois Bank & Trust Co., and Justin DeWitt from the Illinois Department of Public Health.
Campground owners remain upbeat and positive about the 2009 camping season which is now underway in the state, according to Janet Bascom, a coordinator who works for the management company that represents the association.
The association will hold its fall conference Oct. 27-28 at a site yet to be determined.
